Ephemeridae Emerger, Cripple, Stillborn, Nymph
written by Roberto Messori is the second volume of the Superfly series, following Ephemeridae Nuptialis Volatus
. While the first volume described winged insects, this second work in the series describes imitations of all stages from nymph to hatching, offering models of depth nymphs, rising nymphs, surface nymphs, emergent, cripple and stillborn.
A first part describes everything you need to know about ephemeral nymphs, their ethology, morphology, as well as possible hypotheses on the phenomenon of hatching. Each proposed model is unpublished, it is introduced by the description, by the reasons, by any stories and anecdotes and by the construction illustrated and described in the photographic steps. It features 44 dressing, 28 mounting systems, 53 photos of insects accompany the step by step descriptions of the proposed models, in turn illustrated by high resolution photographic steps.
